Hi all,

As I'm working on coding for the next version of IL2-MAT Manager (v1.10) this weekend I thought I'd post a screenshot of the new graphics options and the GUI changes.

The shot shows the new weathered Stab markings as well as the new brown and green numbering sets. I have also included the sections of the GUI that have been changed, particularly the 1st Staffel options which you will see now include a range of options to use other Staffel colours which will appear in the QMB. I'm planning of adding a new option to the Stab markings section to enable/disable the weathered Stab markings and will provide TGA versions of both types as well as the neccessary TGA files fot the new numbers etc. with the download.

I hope that you will enjoy the changes and additions.

Best Regards

Great work, as usual!

I totally recommend this to anyone that uses custom skins. All the markings look very realistic and much better than the standard "Hovering" looking markings provided with IL2.

Absolutely superb!

I suppose that we can expect an update for the AEP aircraft that are not yet supported by IL2 MAT? (Drooling!)

Hi Fehler,

Thanks very much for your comments. I hope to have this version out in a few days after beta testing.

Yes, definitely http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif, As soon as I receive my copy of AEP sometime next week I'll begin looking at starting work on a future update/version to include markings for the new stuff in AEP. The main goal of v1.10 is to incorporate the new Staffel 1 options for use in the QMB as folks have requested this.

Best Regards

Hi chaps,

elephant do you have a tick in the "Germany" check box in the "Weathered National Markings" section ? else you won't see your choice of weathered haken and balken crosses. I've checke my 1.02 and all is working fine.

PS. The weathered haken and balken section selects the styles and the "Germany" box enables them. If you select the "Off" option on the same line as the "Germany" option then it will disable the weathered types and display the default unweathered balkens and hakens. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

My pleasure elephant, phew, I thought I'd broken something http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I've nearly finished v1.10, all the new options seem to work as intended and I will spend tomorrow doing testing, documentation and preparing my website.

Cheers
